  • Because of my moms issues it took us 3 hours to get around but we didn’t mind. The miniatures where my favorite part. We probably took most of our time down there. We took less time on the next floor ...  more »
  • The museum isn't that big, but there is alot to see. The first floor has an impressive collection of miniature items for doll houses. The top floor has a large collection of toys from the 19th century...  more »

  • This place is amazing. Even if your not overly enthused about miniatures you still need to see this. The artistry and craftsmanship exhibited here is nothing short of exceptional. At the miniscule cost of entry this museum provides a look at not only awe inspiring constructions but also brings back memories of childhood no matter your age. There toy collection is probably one of the most laid out and amazing collections I've ever seen displayed. Everything, including the staff, was thoughtful and welcoming. I have the feeling my wife and I will make our way back many times to enjoy this hidden gem in Kansas City.
  • Absolutely incredible. Took my children, and we all loved it. We loved the miniature portion the best, as we love to make small things, but the old toys were really cool too. It's an awesome place and a must go for KC.
